What road bike do you have?

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

What road bike do you have?

sideswipes are great! aluminum cages kinda heavy compared to carbon ... the stella azzuras are light at 219 grams (all my weights are confirmed by digital scale)... and my stem is just about 110 grams

I always love the earlier Cervelos. I was just on a ride today and I passed a (beautiful) lady on a white Cervelo, the one with a huge on the downtube.

Wait a minute, you live in Torrance? Did you rode on the beach bike path (pass Manhattan Beach pier)?

Maybe the yellow tyres would make it slower.

It's a nice combination of 105 and Ultegra.





Hey nice new setup!! I am just popping out to clean my bike now......
